Pimp My Church

Posted 8 years, 8 months ago by Matt Chamberlin - Youth Co-ordinator    3 comments

I heard a really inspiring story the other day about a man who prayed for Kenya for 40 days. He was sceptical about what it might achieve. However before that 40 days was over he had:

  1. got the chance to visit Kenya
  2. met with the President of Kenya(!)
  3. secured the release of several political prisoners

Not bad aye!

Not surprisingly,  I have been feeling really called to pray for our church, the entire thing, young and old. We have some really awesome things happening, and we also have some things that are not working well.

So I’m going to pray for our church for about 20 minutes every day for the next 40 days and I’m also going to fast from my favourite food … and I think we all know what that is… for the next 40 days too.

I’m also going to pray for our church for about 30 minutes every Saturday at church from 9am-9:30am during this time.

If you feel like you might want to join me in my 40 days prayer/fast ( you could choose what you wanted to fast from , favourite food, TV etc) and maybe even join me at church on the Saturdays then that would be cool.

Here’s the Promise I’m standing on

Matthew 18:18

I will build my church and all the powers of hell will not conquer it.

So here’s my prayer

Lord, build Your church,

let our church be a blessing to all who encoounter it

Amen

 

Feel free to add your prayers
